Yes, Ariana Grande? Lorne Michaels would like to see you in his office, please! During her opening musical monologue on ‘SNL’ March 13, Ariana accidentally said ‘sh*t’! Click through to watch her horrible flub!
Ariana Grande, 22, was in the middle of a song during her monologue as host of Saturday Night Live‘s March 12 episode about how she was ready for a big scandal, and well, she got it. Ariana flubbed a line and said “oh sh*t” into the mic! Oh, that’s not good! Click through to watch the cringeworthy moment!
If there’s one thing you don’t do when you’re on SNL, it’s curse! Ariana broke the golden rule within about 15 minutes of opening her episode, which may be a new record! During a rousing musical number in her monologue, called “What Will My Scandal Be?” the singer muses about all the grown-up controversies she might have one day, something much larger and more serious than donut-licking!
People are upset that Ariana Grande said "Oh shit" on NBC?! Whatever. I'm going to listen to it on repeat. https://t.co/ixjAfmijCQ

It’s ironic that in a song about scandals, Ariana manages to create a small one of her own! Singing the hilarious lyrics “maybe I’ll puke in a pool/or pimp slap Adele,” Ariana immediately gives the camera wide eyes and says “oh sh*t.” Yeah, that’s what we were thinking, too! It’s unclear what prompted her to say it, because it doesn’t really seem like she messed up any lyrics; she stayed on beat the whole time. But it’s clear that it wasn’t scripted. The whole moment was erased from the West Coast broadcast of the show, which you can compare to below:
The rest of Ariana’s hosting gig went off with a hitch. Playing double duty as musical guest, too, Ariana crushed two performances of “Dangerous Woman” and “Be Alright.” She also wowed us with an incredible Jennifer Lawrence impression. Flub aside, it was a great night!
